Soon for inhabitants of Cuba cars at last - that will turn from luxury to means of transportation. The island authorities have cancelled an interdiction for free purchase and sale of cars.

Doctors and other experts also could buy the cars made in the former countries of the socialist block, but could not sell them.
Now as the official newspaper of the Cuban Ministry of Justice writes, “ property cession of rights on vehicles by means of purchase or donation can be carried out without the special permission “.
